Construction is almost completed. Sited on eight enclosed acres of gently rolling hills in the heart of Bedminster’s Hunt Country, this French Country-style center hall Colonial was custom-built in 1986. The current owners have just completed an extensive remodeling process and new addition to transform it into a 21st century masterwork. Restored right down to the studs, the five bedroom, five full and two half bath layout offers clean, fresh finishes with a Hamptons feel. The wonderful floor plan assures gracious living amid sophisticated details. Beautiful, full quarter sawn oak hardwood floors have been used throughout.
The living room and sun room boast cathedral ceilings and walls of windows, exposing the outdoors and allowing sunshine to stream into each room. An expansive chef’s kitchen features an abundance of Wood-Mode cabinets, Carrara marble counters and high-end stainless steel appliances including a Thermador six-burner gas stove, double wall ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Sub-Zero freezer, two Bosch dishwashers and a drawer microwave. Additional prep and storage space is offered in a pantry. Arranged with two master suites, one on the first floor and one on the second, the home’s thoughtful design offers flexibility. Marble appointments in each bath convey a luxurious spa-like feel.
Multiple sets of French doors along the back of the house open onto a 2,000 square-foot brick patio. The patio leads to a huge 22-by-50-foot Anthony & Sylvan heated in-ground pool with an expansive sun shelf and automatic pool cover. A meandering stream feeds a pond on the acreage, while the nearby gazebo with several swinging seats reveals a spectacular view of the back of the house and provides a tranquil spot to take in this beautiful country estate.
Additional amenities include new Pella windows and doors, a 50,000 watt generator, security system, a new roof, new multi-zone air conditioning system and new central vacuum system. Another outstanding feature of this special new listing is the property’s farm assessment, assisting in keeping taxes low.
